Oliver Westermeier, part of the Brooks' Five
Oliver Westermeier arrived in New York to pursue a career in art after receiving training as an illustrator in Munich, Germany. He established a fine furniture restoration studio and currently works with blue-chip clients and renowned artists. Westermeier tends to create series, pursuing ideas until he has exhausted their possibilities. Recently, Westermeier has been working digitally, creating sketches on an iPad. These daily visual exercises respond to stimuli from a variety of sources, often verbal or written phrases that he encounters in everyday life in the New York art world. This series, "Selfless Selfies," created during the pandemic, features 180 vibrant images, most of them figurative. They are intended to be seen on a large screen, and this 20 minute mp4 file will be minted as an NFT as soon as we figure out where ethereum is going.
